The Segment Distance function creates a segment based on two input coordinates and a specified distance. The segment can be used to represent a distance that extends from the first coordinate, though it may not necessarily connect with the second coordinate.
- Start ArcMap.
- On the menu bar, click Customize > Toolbars > Production Feature Builder.
- Click the Feature Builder button on the Production Feature Builder toolbar.
The Feature Builder window appears.
- Choose Segment Distance in the list on the Functions tab.
- Define a coordinate for the start point of the polyline by doing one of the following:
- Click the Pinprick tool on the Production Feature Builder toolbar and click on the map
- Type the coordinates in the cells on the Input tab in the Coordinates area.
- Repeat step 5 to define a coordinate for the end point of the segment.
- Click the cell next to Distance and type a value.
This is the distance the segment is going to extend from the first coordinate. The default unit is Nautical Miles.
- Click the Execute button .
Depending on the locations of the two coordinates and the distance specified, the resulting segment may not connect the two coordinates.
